Excited to welcome back these world-renowned mash-up artists / producers.
8pm | $12.00 advance $15.00 day of show
A mash-up crew who came to fame thanks to their genre-jumping mixes, the Hood Internet were formed in Chicago after members Aaron Brink (ABX) and Steve Reidell (STV SLV) both moved to the city with fresh college diplomas. They met in the indie band May or May Not, but after hearing mash-up DJs like Girl Talk and Them Jeans, they headed straight for the laptop and began combining Lil Wayne with Modest Mouse, Swizz Beatz with Deerhoof, and R. Kelly with Jens Lekman. Initial results were uploaded to the Hood Internet blog in 2007 and it didn't take long for the music to explode. Right-click downloads quickly ticked into the thousands and by the end of the year New York Magazine had featured the band. The Hood Internet Mixtape, Vol. 1 also landed in 2007, while 2008's mixtape The Hood Internet vs Chicago landed on some media year-end Top Ten lists, including Current TV's. For music not released in any traditional format, it was a milestone, as it was in 2009 when the Ting Tings performed their song "Shut Up and Let Me Go" live with a bit of Estelle's "American Boy" in the middle, a nod to the Hood Internet's mash-up mix of the songs. In 2010 the group got some cool corporate sponsorship when the New York City streetwear brand Mishka sponsored their Trillwave mixtape. In 2012, the Hood Internet moved beyond the mash-up with their debut studio album, Feat. Released by the Decon label, Feat featured a wide range of guests including Black Moth Super Rainbow's Tobacco, AC Newman, and Kid Static.

9pm | $5.00 day of show
SNAP! is the brainchild of Ms. Coco Madrid, originally ignited by the musical talents and tastes of DJs Palmer "Freaky Outty" Auty and Chip "Colin Jones" Brokaw in 2007. Spawned in the dingy nooks of Branx in Portland, Oregon, the night was born out of the ferocious, crate-digging appetites of Palmer and Chip, alongside the need to establish a party for people to appreciate the early to mid-90s sounds of hip-hop, house, RnB, and bass-heavy club remixes that were in desperate need of dusting off. The music collections of Freaky Outty and Colin Jones were ready to be released upon the masses, an antithesis from the oppressive, thuggish aesthetic dominating Top 40 airwaves at the time. An arsenal of vibrant, jazzy, afro-centric, uplifting, and joyful club bangers had been amassed and was ready to resuscitate a youthful feeling of nostalgia amongst clubbers in Portland and beyond.
Fast-forward 2012: SNAP! is an institution. Having moved out of the confines of Branx and into the limelight of Holocene, one of Portland's most prestigious and popular nightclubs, the night has amassed popularity beyond capacity, powered by the razor-sharp turntablist antics and exclusive edits of Doc Adam (PDX -- Ante Up, Crossfaded Bacon) alongside the unimpeachably deep crates of Colin Jones (PDX -- Big Green Jones Show).
